“Catch” Some Summer Fun Along The Broad RiverPosted on July 26, 2016
Spanning over 70 miles along Georgia’s landscape is the state’s last free-flowing river, The Broad River. With a rich history, unspoiled nature, and broad variety of fish species, it’s no wonder this local gem is one of the most tempting fisheries and popular attractions in the area. Today, the river is enjoyed by many through boating, camping, picnics, concerts, events, and of course – fine fishing.
With 10 access points, residents of The Georgia Club have plenty of opportunities to take advantage of these 70+ miles of fishing and fun. The river’s winding banks and variety of fish species can turn a day trip into a weekend getaway with friends and family. Getting out and enjoying this natural wonder is just as much a privilege as it is a tradition.
With some of the best bass fishing close to Athens, you are bound to find a boatload of fun. Whether fishing, camping, or paddling across the state, there’s something for everyone. For those without a canoe or kayak, rentals are available through two local outfitters close to Athens: The Broad River Outpost and The Sandbar.
Located only minutes from this local gem is The Georgia Club, a premier golf and country club tucked away in the historic town of Statham (only 15 minutes from Athens). Residents of the Club enjoy a traditional Southern lifestyle (charming architecture, front porch gatherings and Bulldogs tailgating) combined with the convenience of modern amenities (championship golf, tennis and fitness centers).
